helmet coal
29 August 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In one of Jan Svankmajer's many surreal shorts, a little girl goes downstairs to get some potatoes, and sees some pretty unusual things: a man sleeping in coal, a woman baking things made of coal, and shoes eating croissants. And the cat is also something perplexing. Maybe "Do pivnice" is looking at confronting our fears, or maybe something else. But whatever the overarching idea is, this is a pretty neat flick. I think that more than anything, these sorts of movies should disprove the notion that many of us in the West probably have that nothing creative came from the Eastern Bloc; it seems to me that Svankmajer's work is more creative than a lot of what I've seen from the US. So definitely "Czech" this movie out.
